More Fishy

I want to give a quick plug for one of my colleagues at YPM, Jordan Colosi, who has just started blogging on her work in the Vertebrate Zoology collections. One of the strengths of blogs in a museum context is that they give you an opportunity to delve into some of ongoing activities in the collections in a way that is not possible in a conventional website. So I definitely recommend that you go take a look at The Life You (And I) Never Knew. My favorite is the pug nosed eel, which parasitizes sharks by burrowing into their bodies via the gill slits. Eww.
